Yesterday's Scripture Guidance

1 Samuel 13:11-14

"What have you (Saul) done?" asked Samuel.  Saul replied, "When I saw that the men were scattering, and that you did not come at the set time, and that the Philistines were assembling at Mikmash,

I thought, 'Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not sought the Lord's (God) favor.  So I felt compelled to offer the burnt offering.'"

"You have done a foolish thing," Samuel told Saul.  "You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you; if you had, He (God) would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.

But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord (God) has sought out a man after His own heart and appointed him ruler of His people, because you have not kept the Lord's (God) command."


In today's Scripture..., the great servant of God, Samuel; had been by God that He was going to send Samuel a man that God had selected to be the ruler over the people of Israel.  And God told Samuel that Saul was the man that He was talking about.  So Samuel took Saul aside to make him a ruler.  Amen!  Saul is made a ruler; however..., He must do what God, through His servant..., tells him to do.  Amen!  Samuel told Saul to go to the city of Gilgal and wait seven days for Samuel to come join him; then Samuel would burn offerings to God..., and then tell Saul what he must do next.  Amen!  However; Saul made a decision based on his own timetable..., and his own understanding!  He did not wait as He was told to wait!  And often times..., we do the same thing!  We rely on our own timetable and our own understanding; and make decisions that are different than what God has told us to do!  Amen!  When we do that; we are being disobedient to what God has told us to do!  Hallelujah!  Tell the truth!  God will often bless us; and then test our faith!  Amen!  Saul was being tested by God; and when he did not wait on God..., he failed his test!  Amen again!  And as soon as Saul disobeyed God..., God let Saul know it!  Glory Hallelujah!  Our Scripture continues the story of Saul's disobedience, with Samuel the servant of God saying to Saul...., "What have you (Saul) done?" asked Samuel.  God has seen you disobey Him!  Amen!   And the Word tells us that ..., Saul replied, "When I saw that the men were scattering, and that you did not come at the set time, and that the Philistines were assembling at Mikmash,
I thought, 'Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not sought the Lord's (God) favor.  So I felt compelled to offer the burnt offering.'"
  Saul was not a bad man; he just trusted on his own understanding..., instead of trusting in God!  Amen again!  And the Word of God concludes with the consequence for not trusting God..., "You have done a foolish thing," Samuel told Saul.  "You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you; if you had, He (God) would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.  But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord (God) has sought out a man after His own heart and appointed him ruler of His people, because you have not kept the Lord's (God) command."  When God tells you what to do..., trust Him and do it!  Glory to God!  Do not turn to your own understanding when things happen.  Trust what God told you..., and do what God told you!  For when you do not do what God told you to do..., there will be consequences!  Amen.

Today..., our Scripture is speaking to God's people!  God has blessings in store for you!  And God will often bless you; before you do what He has told you to do.  God may bless you..., with a test!  Hallelujah!  But know this..., you still have to do what God has told you to do!  Amen!  And God is watching you; to see if you trust Him..., or do you still rely on your own understanding!  Hallelujah!  Samuel told Saul to go to the city of Gilgal and wait seven days for Samuel to come join him; then Samuel would burn offerings to God..., and then tell Saul what he must do next.  Amen!  However; Saul made a decision based on his own timetable..., and his own understanding!  He did not wait as He was told to wait!  Amen!  Saul was being tested by God; and when he did not wait on God..., he failed his test!  Amen again!  And as soon as Saul disobeyed God..., God let Saul know it!  Glory Hallelujah!  Our Scripture continues the story of Saul's disobedience, with Samuel the servant of God saying to Saul...., "What have you (Saul) done?" asked Samuel.  God has seen you disobey Him!  Amen!   Our Scripture is trying to help someone today!  God has given you a blessing, and you do not know why He gave you that blessing!  Hallelujah!  And God has also given you instruction; and you also do not understand why God has given you this instruction!  Well, take your blessing, that you have no understanding of; and do what God has instructed you to do..., which you also have no understanding of!  Hallelujah!  But trust in God!  For God knows why He did what He did; and why He has you doing what He commanded you!  God has the understanding!  Glory Hallelujah!  Just take your blessing..., and trust God for what is next!  Amen!  God is testing your faith!  And when you disobey God; God will see it..., and let you know He saw it!  Amen again!  So stop trusting yourself to make your own decisions; and trust what God has told you to do..., and then do what God has told you to do!  Amen.

Today..., our Word is speaking to God's people!  God has blessings in store for you!  And God will often bless you; before you do what He has told you to do.  God may bless you..., with a test!  Hallelujah!  But know this..., you still have to do what God has told you to do!  Amen!  And God is watching you; to see if you trust Him..., or do you still rely on your own understanding!  Hallelujah!  Samuel told Saul to go and wait seven days for Samuel to come join him; then Samuel would burn offerings to God..., and then tell Saul what he must do next.  Amen!  However; Saul made a decision based on his own timetable..., and his own understanding!  Amen!  Saul was being tested by God..., he failed his test!  Amen again!  And as soon as Saul disobeyed God..., God let Saul know it!  Glory Hallelujah!  And God has seen you disobey Him!  Amen!  And the Word tells us that ..., Saul replied, "When I saw that the men were scattering, and that you did not come at the set time, and that the Philistines were assembling at Mikmash, I thought, 'Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not sought the Lord's (God) favor.  So I felt compelled to offer the burnt offering.'"  Saul was not a bad man; he just trusted on his own understanding..., instead of trusting in God!  Amen again!  And the same thing happens to us!  When we do not understand God's plan, or things happen in our life that we think is not God's plan..., we turn to our own understanding!  When God tells you something..., trust Him!  God is testing your faith!  And without faith in God; it is impossible to please God!  Amen!  So stop trusting yourself to make your own decisions; and trust what God has told you to do..., and then do what God has told you to do!  Amen.

Today..., the Word of God is speaking to you!  God has blessings in store for you!  And God will often bless you; before you do what He has told you to do.  God may bless you..., with a test!  Hallelujah!  But know this..., you still have to do what God has told you to do!  Amen!  And God is watching you; to see if you trust Him..., or do you still rely on your own understanding!  Hallelujah!  And often times..., you rely on your own timetable and your own understanding; and make decisions that are different than what God has told you to do!  When you do that; you are being disobedient to what God has told you to do!  Hallelujah!  Tell the truth!  God sees you when disobey Him; and God will let you know that He saw you disobey Him!  Amen!  It is not that you are evil; but you sinned by trusting your own understanding instead of God's!  Amen again!  And the Word of God concludes with the consequence for not trusting God..., "You have done a foolish thing," Samuel told Saul.  "You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you; if you had, He (God) would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.  But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord (God) has sought out a man after His own heart and appointed him ruler of His people, because you have not kept the Lord's (God) command."  When God tells you what to do..., trust Him and do it!  Glory to God!  Do not turn to your own understanding when things happen.  Trust what God told you..., and do what God told you!  For when you do not do what God told you to do..., there will be consequences!  Trusting your own understanding over God..., is a foolish thing!  Amen!  Today..., stop trusting yourself to make your own decisions; and trust what God has told you to do..., and then do what God has told you to do!  For if you do not; God may take away every blessing He has for you!  Tell the truth!  God is testing you!  Amen.
